We were recently sent a selection of clothes from the Mothercare Spring into Colour SS13 collection. It is no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Mothercare clothes, so I was very excited when the delivery man arrived.
The Spring into Colour collection is part of the Spring-Summer 2013 range, and it is all about bright, funky colours and styles. It is great value for money, and it is amazing quality, too.
The weather hasn’t been amazing recently, so the kids haven’t had a chance to wear a lot of it yet, but here are some of the outfits Syd has worn so far:
The Orange and Lace dress is even more beautiful in the flesh! It costs £17, and comes with matching knickers. It is perfect for a special occasion. Syd will be wearing hers for her 1st Birthday in a few weeks’ time. She loved playing peek-a-boo through the lace layer.
The Lilac Jeans are £10. They have an adjustable waist and are pretty long. I rolled them up, and thought they still looked funky. This means they should last a good while, as Syd has plenty of growing room in them. The top I teamed it with costs £6. It has sequins sewn onto it and is very pretty in the flesh.
The Leggings and Vest top are out of multi packs (pictured and described below).
I tried Sam’s items on him,
and did a bit of a fashion show on Instagram – aren’t they gorgeous!
The VW Camper Van TShirt is part of the Mothercare Value collection. It is an absolute bargain at £2.50. Sam has had so many compliments about this top, I have bought it for him in the next size up, too. The shorts it is pictured with are £10. They have 5 pockets and sit just below the knee.
The White Polo Shirt is £4, it washed really well. I was concerned the red might run, but it didn’t. (I did use a colour catcher though). The Jeans it is pictured with are £10. From far away, they look like worn jeans, but close up, (like in the final photo) they are Check. The pumps pictured in the middle image are £10. The laces are elasticated, and they pull on. They were a good fit, but took a while to get them on Sam.
The top pictured in the 3rd image is £4 as well. I really like the clashy look of this outfit. It screams Summer to me. The white, pull on pumps look great too. Sam’s hair seems to fit well with this style of clothes. He looks like a Surfer Dude!
We still have a pile of items to test once
the sun decides to head up North. We are off on our holidays soon, so
fingers crossed we will be able to wear them, then!
The Stripy TShirt is £4, or 2 for £7. It feels like quite heavy cotton. It’ll be great for keeping the sun off Syd’s shoulders.
The leggings were in a 3 pack. She has worn 1 pair of them. They washed well, but Syd is a little chunky, so they were a bit snug on her. It was £10 for all 3 pairs. The matching tops are a twin pack of vests. They are elasticated, and ruffle round the top. They are £8 for the two pack. These would be perfect for on holiday, or a very warm day in the UK.
The Jeans are £10. They are quite long in the leg, and have an elasticated waist. I will roll up the jeans on Syd for now as they’ll be too long otherwise. They’ll last ages though as she has growing room in length and waist. They are a little shorter in length, compared to the other tops Sam received.
All told, I am a huge fan of the Spring Into Colour collection. I can’t help but smile when I see the kids looking all Summery. I have bought Syd a couple of cardigans so she can wear the vests ASAP. I give the collection 4.5/5. Great value, washes well, looks great and good quality. The only thing to improve it would have been slightly wider legs on the leggings.
